In a rapidly evolving world, timely and accurate information is crucial for individuals, businesses, and government entities to respond proactively to high-impact events and emerging risks. The delay in receiving critical information can lead to inadequate preparedness and response, potentially resulting in loss of life, financial loss, or missed opportunities. Furthermore, the vast amount of data generated every second makes it exceedingly challenging to sift through the noise and identify pertinent information as events unfold. Additionally, first responders and emergency services often face the challenge of lacking real-time information which is crucial for effective response and management during emergencies.
Dataminr addresses these challenges through its AI-driven real-time information discovery and event detection platform. By analyzing vast amounts of public data, Dataminr's platform identifies the earliest signals of high-impact events and emerging risks, providing early warnings, and thus enabling a proactive response.
In the private sector, Dataminr Pulse aids corporations in crisis response by offering tools for real-time monitoring of events, playbooks, messaging tools, and post-event documentation, thereby enhancing crisis management capabilities.
In the public sector, Dataminr’s First Alert technology supports first responders during natural disasters and other emergency events by providing timely alerts, thus enhancing situational awareness and enabling a quicker response.
Dataminr supports the media and journalism sector through its Dataminr for News tool, which alerts journalists about emerging information in real time, assisting in faster and more accurate news reporting. Through these solutions, Dataminr significantly contributes to enhancing preparedness, enabling informed decision-making, and improving response strategies amid critical events.
Dataminr performs trillions of daily computations across billions of public data inputs in more than 150 languages, drawing on text, images, videos, logs from sensors, and multimodal combinations of these formats from over 100,000 sources. These sources span blogs, global and regional social media sites, web forums, local digital media, radio and audio transmissions, the deep and dark web, cyber signals, and Internet of Things (IOT) devices.
Dataminr Pulse fortifies organizational robustness by delivering real-time insights into risks and unfolding events, coupled with comprehensive tools to orchestrate responses—all driven by advanced predictive and generative AI technologies. This proactive approach significantly elevates the planning and response strategies for unpredictable and evolving risks, ensuring heightened safety for individuals and markedly reducing business interruptions.

Dataminr’s First Alert product for the public sector alerts first responders to breaking emergency events, enabling the fastest real-time response.
For example, on August 14, 2021, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, killing more than 2,000 people and injuring nearly 13,000 others. Hundreds of thousands of homes and key infrastructures were destroyed across the country. First Alert delivered early, real-time, breaking news alerts on the event and its aftershocks, providing critical information to first responders and emergency personnel, allowing them to accelerate relief efforts.
Dataminr for News detects global events by processing billions of public data inputs per day in a wide range of formats and from over 800,000 distinct, publicly available data sources. These data inputs include text, images, video, and sound.
According to Dataminr, journalists in over 1,500 newsrooms around the world rely on Dataminr for News to discover the earliest possible indications of breaking news and gain an edge in covering the stories that matter most to their audiences.
With open-source data layers from providers such as the National Weather Service, along with proprietary data from providers like IBM Weather, teams can visualize hurricane paths, active alert zones, and storm impact areas. This visualization enables users to respond proactively to major weather events and maintain an accurate line of sight as they unfold.
